(The Lightroom video tutorial in this post is just under the introductory text below)

In this video tutorial, we are going to move from Lightroom’s General Preferences, on to the Preset preferences in the Preset Tab. By adjusting options in the Preset Tab of the Preferences dialogue, we are able to customize the way Adobe Photoshop Lightroom applies default develop settings to images. We can even specify certain develop settings to apply to cameras with specific serial numbers, images with a certain camera ISO setting, or even both.

This becomes extremely useful when say you want Lightroom to apply certain effects to cameras or images shot in a certain manner. For example, applying general settings like +20 Noise Reduction Luminance to images shot at 800 ISO and +35 Noise Reduction Luminance to images shot at 1600 ISO.
